Hugh Jackman Working to Repair Damaged Voice Caused by Wolverine Role
20th Century Fox

The 'Greatest Showman' actor is working with 'a singing teacher' to help him repair his damaged voice caused by the 'growling and yelling' in the 'X-Men' franchise.

AceShowbiz - Hugh Jackman was left with damaged voice from his role as Wolverine. Playing the role of Logan/Wolverine in the "X-Men" film series between 2000 and 2017, the 54-year-old actor claims that the "growling and yelling" he did for the part wrecked his singing voice.

"My falsetto is not as strong as it used to be and that I directly put down to some of the growling and yelling. My voice teacher in drama school would've been horrified by some of the things I did [in 'Wolverine']," Hugh said on the BBC's "Front Row".

However, "The Greatest Showman" star is working on trying to repair the damage. He said, "We learned the technique [in school] of how to shout and how to yell without ruining your voice. However, during 'Wolverine', I did some screaming and yelling and things that I think did damage my voice, which I think I'm working on. I work with a singing teacher, and I make sure that I try not to hurt myself. And I really put a lot of effort into both physical movement, and my vocal preparation for every role."

Meanwhile, Hugh is set to reprise his role as Logan/Wolverine in the upcoming Shawn Levy-directed "Deadpool 3", starring Ryan Reynolds. He previously said, "A little part of me now thinks I'd be better at it."

"Is that arrogance of age or something? Wolverine's a tortured character - more tortured than me. But I always get the feeling of him being comfortable in his own skin. And I feel more comfortable in my own skin now."
